CVLT has been involved in protecting parcels of sensitive land in the Cumberland Community Forest since 2005 and we have worked hand-in-hand with the Cumberland Community Forest Society, the Village of Cumberland, and the Comox Valley Regional District on these important acquisitions.

Our first covenant here was in March 2005 (29 hectares) and was quickly followed in December of that year with an additional 43.1 hectares. Then, in November 2020, covenants were placed on the “Space Nugget” (22.05 hectares) and along Perseverance Creek (126.6 hectares). 

Safeguarding parts of the Cumberland Community Forest is a top conservation priority for CVLT. Covenants here ensure our watershed is protected and allows for restricted areas for wildlife refuge, as well as low-impact public recreation. 

There is a parking lot behind the Cumberland Recreation Centre off Sutton Road; however, this often fills early with people going mountain biking. Parking is also available in Coal Creek Historic Park at the Chinatown site as well as the Japanese Town Site on Comox Lake Road.

Dogs must be kept under their owners’ control and the trails are shared with mountain bikers. Be bear aware in this area.
